    Default Gran Turismo Sport


    Well we heard this week about this new gaming title coming to PS4.

    As you’ve probably heard by now, the next chapter in the GT series – Gran Turismo Sport – was officially unveiled at the Paris Games Show a few hours ago.

    Although there are still a lot of questions about exactly what GT Sport is and how it will fit into the series as a whole, there are a few details we can summarize to help us form an early picture of what we have to look forward to:

    3 Game Modes

    GTPlanet can confirm that GT Sport will include three distinct game modes: “Campaign”, “Sports Mode”, and “Arcade Mode”. This nomenclature is an interesting departure from what we’ve seen in the most recent titles, suggesting the game will take a different route in its overall structure.

    FIA Gran Turismo Online Championship

    The FIA aims to formally ratify the “Gran Turismo Online Championship” at the organization’s next World Motorsport Council meeting. Two championships will be held simultaneously throughout the year: the “Nations Cup” and “Manufacturers Cup”, where players represent either their country or their favorite car manufacturer.

    Once ratified, the FIA will manage the series directly as any of their other franchises, including the World Rally Championship, Formula 1, World Endurance Championship, etc. The winners will be honored at the FIA’s annual prize-giving ceremonies in Paris.



    Live “E-Sports” Events

    The Nations Cup and Manufacturers Cup will have “live” components, presumably similar in form to the regional finals held around the world each year for GT Academy. Polyphony Digital and Sony are actively looking to promote Gran Turismo as an “e-sports” platform to promote virtual motorsports in the future.

    We have also learned that organized “online events” are also planned to be held on a regular basis.

    More Than Just Online Racing

    There has been some concern among players who enjoy offline racing that GT Sport is primarily focused towards online competitions, but that’s likely not the case, according to much of the language used both on the PlayStation Blog and the official website:

    “But it’s not just about online racing; the GT teams have continued to build on the games legacy of accessibility to ensure that the game is open to all to enjoy.”
    — PlayStation Blog

    “The major difference between real life motorsports and ‘Gran Turismo SPORT’ is in the fact that anyone, from children to the elderly, can participate and enjoy racing.

    “Even players who have never played driving games until now can discover how fun it is to drive! Whilst at the same time, it will have the depth and complexity to meet the expectations of the existing Gran Turismo fans.”
    — gran-turismo.com

    PlayStation VR Support Confirmed

    There’s no doubt about it – Gran Turismo Sport will be fully compatible with the PlayStation VR virtual-reality headset. This will have a profound impact on the gameplay experience, as racing games have long been considered one of the best applications of VR technology.

    “Through the testing that we’ve performed so far, the experience looks to be something that’s very good, and very natural,” Kazunori Yamauchi said during his presentation.

    As of writing, there is no solid release date for the PlayStation VR yet, though it’s currently set for sometime during the “first half of 2016”. It’s likely to be closely tied to the full launch of Gran Turismo Sport.

    Improved Graphics, Physics, & Sounds

    This isn’t much of a surprise, but the physics will reportedly be improved to take advantage of the PS4’s additional processing power. Engine sounds have also been a priority for Polyphony Digital since the launch of Gran Turismo 6, and GTPlanet has learned the company’s new sound engineer Mike Caviezel has been hard at work to change the way the sounds are generated.

    We’ll finally be able to hear his progress when we get our first hands-on look at GT Sport.



    GT Academy 2016 & Vision GT

    We’ve been hearing off-the-record for quite some time that GT Academy 2016 will be hosted on the PlayStation 4, and it appears all but confirmed that GT Sport will be the new platform for Nissan’s annual gamer-to-racer competition.

    Kazunori mentioned both GT Academy and Vision GT during his presentation, discussing how both programs made history in the past, and how Polyphony hopes to continue doing so in the future.

    2016 Launch Date, Public Beta in Spring

    The PlayStation Blog has confirmed the game will launch in 2016, with a “Spring 2016” window for Gran Turismo Sport’s beta. During his presentation in Paris, Kazunori announced that the game will begin open beta testing with “everyone in the game community” starting “early next year”. What does this mean, exactly?

    Since the launch of PlayStation 4, several major titles have public beta versions of their game on the PlayStation Network, including Star Wars: Battlefront and Uncharted 4. They are essentially pre-release demos, which offer an early look at the game.

    Gran Turismo, of course, has a long history of such previews – older fans will no doubt recall Gran Turismo HD which released as a download-only title on the PlayStation 3 back in 2006. It gave us our first look at the Eiger Nordwand circuit along with online leaderboards and a small collection of new cars. There was a similar demo for GT5: Prologue, though it was only released in Japan.

    Is This Gran Turismo 7?

    Is this game going to replace Gran Turismo 7? Is it a “Prologue” by another name? We don’t know yet, but we do know that Gran Turismo Sport appears to be an important new platform which Polyphony Digital is going to build upon over the next few years.

    UPDATE: We now know that GT Sport is not Gran Turismo 7, as confirmed by Sony executive Jim Ryan in an interview with Eurogamer.

    What’s Next?

    The Gran Turismo events calendar just got a lot more interesting with these unexpected announcements from Paris. Next up is the GT Awards at SEMA in Las Vegas on November 4th, though it is not traditionally used to make major announcements about the game (they did, however, use the opportunity to announce Gran Turismo’s Pikes Peak sponsorship last year).

    The next big event to put on your calendar is the PlayStation Experience 2015, December 5th-6th, which will now almost certainly feature a major blowout of information regarding both Gran Turismo Sport and PlayStation VR. In early 2016, look for the Consumer Electronics Show and the North American International Auto Show to bring the next rounds of hype. We’ll be keeping a close eye on news about the game around the clock.

    Also stated it isn't a Prologue either, so, does that make it GT7's Prologue's Prologue?!?!! :P
    On a side note, finally a good reason to save up and get a G29!

    Someone who got to play it in a kiosk said the sound wasn't much different from GT6. If that turns out to be true then I'll probably skip it. Will have to wait for more hands on impressions.

    The trailer will have great engine audio, because the trailers always do.

    Would there be an expected huge audible difference though? Graphics I would hope would be better on Next Gen, but audio I don't know. Seeing as though most cars a "normal" road worthy cars, a bellowing fire breathing engine sound would probably be unrealistic. Track cars are different story, but I wouldn't be expecting a noticeable different personally. But I wouldn't say no to better sound haha

    I don't think anyone is complaining about Nissan Leaf audio!

    But a Zonda R needs to sound like a Zonda R, not a Hoover vacuum cleaner. The sound of race cars is such a huge part of the experience; if they screw that up, they're ruining the experience.

    So many other games get the audio right... pretty much every other game in fact. When GTA V cars sound better and more realistic than GT6 cars, you've got a big problem.

    If they can't get the audio right I might look at getting Assetto Corsa instead, the PS4 version is coming in late August I believe.

    So agree with this. I've made my position on weak audio very clear.

    Makes it so much more interesting.

    Also can confirm assetto corsa is epic sound wise. Have it on pc. Wait till you hear the Ferrari f1 v12s. Nuts.

    He left unexpectedly one GT night when I may have accidentally pinned him up against a wall due to drifting...

    I've been getting back into Project Cars recently, that game is actually pretty damn good. I had to enable some assists to get it working well with a controller, but the car and track selection is great, as is the dynamic weather and time of day stuff. And not a single vacuum cleaner to be found

    The lighting in GTS looks fantastic, but without proper audio there's no way I can justify getting it. It's sad to see Sony's biggest franchise stagnate like this

    That's strange,I would have thought the GT-86 would have been featured.

    Although as a side note, is Project Cars got a decent MP? Wouldn't mind a good AUF car night again

    My car is in all of these games mate... Is yours?

    It does indeed have MP. I don't think I've tried it though, Project Cars came out at roughly the same time as the Witcher 3 so I missed the couple of AUF nights that were had.

    It is fairly decent, we keep saying we should have a Pcars night but everyone usually just keeps playing other stuff. No shuffle racing unfortunately though.

    Kaz has said that Gran Turismo Sport won't have dynamic lighting or weather changes. WTF?!!

    EDIT: Apparently it won't have an offline SP mode either, just licence test type stuff. I'm starting to think PD have completely lost all touch with reality.

    EDIT: Apparently it won't have an offline SP mode either, just licence test type stuff. I'm starting to think PD have completely lost all touch with reality.


    Interested in joining AUF? Full instructions can be found HERE.
    That is ludicrous! Such as great game back in the day. Was the very first game I played on PS1. But all that history seems wasted now.

    Do you think they are looking at just targeting the hardcore sim nerds?

    Will this be more like that GT Prologue demo with a limited car list? My purchasing of it is determined by the inclusion of the Sauber C9 or not.
